. republicans were particularly incensed that the obama administration kept some of those regulation, held them back until after the election but they're coming now. bill: big, big picture. 35,000 feet. the idea of the law was to insure those who did in the have insurance. to make sure that they are covered. does any of this address that in the end? >> well, i think there is no doubt that people who are today uncovered will have some sort of health coverage. i think the bigger question politically is, the president's promise which he made over and over again if you have health coverage and you like it you will be able to keep it. i don't think anybody is thinking that will be the case. so for the large percentage of americans, the large majority of americans who have health care coverage and who are satisfied with it, i think whether that changes and it changes for the worst is going to determine the political future, maybe the whole future of obamacare. bill: how would you answer that now as we look at this today? >> well it looks to me there are lots of dislocations, price increases, changes

'll give nonlethal aid, sort of leading from behind. i really can't predict what the obama administration m in their policy. if ty do cross it clearly we'll have to make sure these don't get mobilized. five areas have chemical weapons, depots in syria. we have to protect the our ally israel. to make sure the region doesn't degenerate. that entire region with assad completely on the side of iran and lebanon and hezbollah, this is a regional conflict that many of us have an trying to plead that will expand into the entire region, affect the economy and energy prices. melissa: let me ask you about that. what does it mean for the econy? the human toll is devastating and makes us all shudder to see the pictures. this is a show about "money". we want to make sure we discuss that. what does decivilization mean for the economies of the region? >> well, because you have sort of the shia-sunni ax splitting right in the middle of syria you will see the arab sunni states, the gulf states getting involved. they may find the destabilization prevents transport of oil like it used to. they jack up prices t
in the obama administration went on offense. >> to say we have no reason to believe the allegations represent anything more than the regime's continued attempt to discredit the legitimate opposition and distract from its own atrocities committed against the syrian people. >> we would warn the regime making these charges, any kind of pretext or cover. for its use of chemical weapons. >> that wasn't the first such warning from the white house. >> red line for us is we start seeing chemical weapons moved around or utilized. >> late today, carl levin, democrat of michigan and chairman of the senate armed services committee told foreignpolicy.com josh rogan he wants to see the u.s. establish no fly zone over syria. others want to see u.s. troops on the ground in syria, possibly in conjunction with nato or other allied forces to secure the stockpiles of chemical weapons. bret? >> bret: james rosen live on the north lawn. thank you. president obama leaves in an hour-and-a-half on his second mideast trip as commander-in-chief. it will include his first such visit to israel. chief white house correspo
the obama administration is planning, is drawing up plans to give intelligence agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial info on american citizens and others who bank inside the u.s. the plan is part of an effort to track terror networks and organized crime but is raising all kinds of privacy concerns. chief washington correspondent james rosen live in our d.c. bureau. now, where does this new plan originate, james, and exactly how would it work? >> reporter: jon, good morning. the secret document that lays out this new plan obtained by reuters is a project of the treasury department's financial crimes enforcement network. under existing law banks and other financial institutions are required to file reports anytime they red flag suspicious activity such as the movement of more than $10,000 in a single transaction, unusual structuring of accounts and so forth. the fbi enjoys full access to these report, but the nation's intelligence agencies must make case-by-case requests for them. this new document proposes the database be linked directly to the nation's i
time provide food and other non- lethal aid directly to the rebels. but the obama administration has held back from sending weapons, citing the influx of foreign extremists into rebel ranks. the president could confront questions about that policy when he visits the middle east next week, with stops in israel, the west bank and jordan. >> time is of the essence here. >> brown: frederic hof, formerly the president's special advisor for transition in syria, is now at the atlantic council, a washington think tank. >> it is probably time for the united states and its allies to engage directly in strong relationships with these armed rebels, the ones we've been able to vet, the ones who share our basic values. some of those relationships may involve arming. >> brown: the u.s. and others also face the challenge of helping more than a million syrians who have fled to surrounding lebanon, turkey, jordan and iraq. even more are displaced inside syria. today, in beirut, lebanon, the u.n.'s high commissioner on refugees warned, again, of ripple effects. >> the syrian conflict is more than a hu
, including a senior obama administration officials have stated, the very helicopter gunships that the regime is currently using to bomb and shatter civilians. as the united states and the international community stand idle, the consequences are clear -- syria will become a failed state in the heart of the middle east threatening both our ally, israel, and our nato ally, turkey. with or without assad, the country will continue to devolve into a full-scale civil war that is increasingly sectarian, repressive and unstable. meantime, more and more ungoverned space will come under the control of al qaeda and its allies. violence and radicalism will spill even more into lebanon and iraq, fueling sectarian conflicts that are still burning in both countries. syria will turn into a battlefield between sunni and shia extremists. even backed by foreign powers which will ignite sectarian tensions from north america to the gulf and risk a wider regional conflict. this is the course we are on in syria and in the absence of international action, the situation will only get worse. although secretary kerry a
a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
security council in the obama administration and aaron david miller, fellow at the woodrow wilson international center. welcome, both. first, tommy, why did it take so long for this president to get to israel? he had a lot on his plate there were enormous economic challenges to deal with back home. but not every president going to israel in his first term, george bush didn't. this is great opportunity for the president to sync up with prime minister netanyahu on iran, sir yarks the critical issues of the region where israel is in the eye of the storm. he can also speak directly to the israeli people, via a speech to a bunch of university students. >> aaron david miller, you were a middle east negotiator in a number of white houses and state departments, republican and democratic. what, how much syncing up with prime minister netanyahu do you think is going to take place, realistically? >> it's smart politics, it's smart policy, too. obama has got the most dysfunctional relationship with any israeli prime minister in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netany
million to help, an amount almost equal to what the obama administration gave earlier. one questions critics asked now with iron dome and missile resistant bus stops in schools such as these as you see here, does it embolden israel? >> conversation for another day. richard lui, thank you. that's going to wrap up this hour, i'm chris jansing, alex witt is up next filling in. dum. oh dad, you remember my friend alex? yeah. the one that had the work done...

a policy paper for the obama administration. we urge all of you to pick up the synopsis of that paper on the way out. it will be available for you on the web. week, as the president takes off for his trip abroad. to discuss the thinking behind the trip to the middle east, what middle easterners are expecting to hear from the president, what the implications of this trip might be for the broad range of american interests, we have this panel, a distinguished panel of institute experts pe. first we will hear from ambassador ross will provide the context, the thinking behind the visit, what the visit might accomplish and how the visit may differ from president obama's first trip abroad in 2009. then we will turn to david mikulski, a key is just off a plane from israel. he met with senior israeli, a senior palestinians, just as the new government was being formed. there is no truth to the rumor that a good broker of the final agreement. david brokered the final newement for this government. he brings fresh insight from his trip abroad. our third speaker will be might senior mike singh, dir
about a week from now? will that happen? the obama administration warning lawmakers it might have to cancel the annual easter egg roll on the first of april. that event happens every year. expected to draw ten of thousands to the white house set for april 1st, just a few days after the could run out of money. white house is saying finally by using these tickets guests are acknowledging this is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the executive office of the president and other federal agencies. if canceled the event will not be scheduled. we'll notify you if there are any modifications of the event. that bass part of the fine print given to members of congress when the invites went out. invites to bob beckel, former campaign manager co-host of "the five." brad blakeman, deputy campaign manager of president george w. bush. good morning to you. who wants to be peter cottontail here? brad, do you want to raise for your hand for that or is that better suted for bob? >> i will raise my hand. bill: what kind of a mess have they gotten themselves into? >> the pr
. and then when that's verified not just by the obama administration, but by congress itself, then you move on to legalization and a path to citizenship. jon: rand paul one of the more conservative members in the senate. he addressed the questions that conservatives have about this whole issue. let me play that bite for you now. >> immigration will not occur until conservative republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. that's why i'm here today, to begin that conversation and to be part of the solution. jon: and i should point out that in his prepared remarks he started that off by saying imgraduation reform, not just immigration as he did, apparently, in the speech. so what about it? do conservatives have to get onback on the record first of all, for the republican party to have a prayer in the future, and do conservatives have to get onboard for immigration reform to go anywhere? >> well, there's a huge debate about that question, and a hot of conservatives -- a lot of conservatives are saying, look, the argument that hispanic voters would be naturally republicans, is just not
administration. when you depart, you can pick up the presi to our last strategic report titled, obama ii and the middle east. strategic objectives for u.s. policy, jointly authored by two of the foremost thinkers about middle east policy and we're very proud that both of them are here at the washington institute. ambassador dennis ross and ambassador james jeffrey. ambassador ross of course we're about to hear from dennis, served throughout most of the first term, first in the state department and then in the white house with responsibility for overseeing all the national security council work in the middle east. ambassador jeffrey, jim jeffrey, completed his distinguished service in the diplomatic corps last year after having served in, as ambassador in turkey and in iraq. previously in an incarnation in albania and as the deputy national security advisor in the bush administration which he played a special role in addressing the iraq question. so we brought these two highly-experienced, strategic thinkers and policy practitioners together to produce a policy paper for the obama adminis
-- that they were the ones who did this and the obama administration says it has no reason to believe the syrian regime. in the past, president obama has warned that the use of chemical weapons by either side in this conflict would be unacceptable and would be lead to consequences from the united states. joining me now for reaction, lt. colonel oliver north. a fox news military analyst and joins us via skype. thank you for being here. the rebels say it was the syrian government that was trying to take out a police academy that the rebels had managed to take over and that it was a scud missile that missed, and that the government is to blame. the government says this is the rebel's doing and our white house is saying it's deeply skeptical of the claims, that the chemical weapons were used at all. what do you make of it? >> well, based on the footage that we've already shown, that i believe came out of cbs or ap. that shows casualties, several of them at a hospital or a medical treatment facility, but no indications that i can see in that footage, megyn, that would indicate that they've been expos
. if you look the last four years and a policy the obama administration has put in place, it is higher taxes, and burdensome regulations, have made it more expensive for job creators to create jobs and have resulted in sluggish economic growth. we have had .8% growth for the past four years. you would hope the democrats will be looking at policies that will grow the economy. what you're hearing is it will be more of the same. we are talking about a $1 trillion tax increase, more expensive -- more spending and nothing to save social security and medicare reform and those programs in a way that will align them with the feature demographics of this country. it is more the same policies with regard to their budget. we think there is a better way and will look for opportunities to offer amendments that will put that out -- that will point that out. the democrat budget will make it more difficult for stock traders to get back to work. -- for job creators to creat e jobs to get people back to work. >> there was a story today that talked-about the number of democrats griping about the presiden
a drift. the obama administration saw assad as a reformer in the works. then at that on to play a constructive role. toand then it bet on moscow play a constructive role. this is the assad who is bombing villages in syria. this is the assad who is ordering teenagers tortured. frankly, he is engaged in murdering his populist. the ancient city is now in ruins. 70,000 syrians are dead. a million refugees has spilled into neighboring countries. destabilizing those countries. there are troubling reports that assad might be moving to unleash chemical weapons. the u.s. has been generous in supporting suffering serious, butuffering syrians, perhaps naÏvely so. it has been funneled through the un and other international organizations that are restricted to areas controlled by the syrian regime. that is absurd. only recently has the u.s. begun to push food aid directly to the syrian opposition. that shift should accelerate dramatically. i really wonder about providing any humanitarian aid through the un that ends up going to the regime at all. it indirectly helps assad and therefore pres
. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of the palestinian leadership, most of them say at first, not much. they think the president's coming here because he has to, didn't come in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a brea
on the record. the obama administration says that if that is true, that would be the red line the president has set in the past but they haven't said whether they have the intelligence evidence to prove it. i spoke to an israeli high government source who said we're not saying anything about that right now for good reason but they promised it would be part of the private conversations between the president and the prime minister. john and christine. >> john, it really does seem like this symbolic trip, was supposed to be a symbolic trip has brought in new urgency with what's going on in syria. let's bring in chris and katherine. >> i was wondering, what are you hearing from folks on the ground about iran? you know, the conversation between the president and the prime minister. is there some sense that there's going to be an announcement at the end of this trip one way or the other or is this all behind the scenes and we're not going to see anything publicly until later down the road? >> reporter: there's no question both leaders will talk about it because they will be asked about it when they h
. we're talking about afghanistan but how do you think history is going to judge the obama administration's decision not to intervene in any significant military fashion in syria? 70,000 dead as you know and several million refugees. >> i think it's way too early how to predict how history is going to judge whether our policy is right. it's not too early to know how history will judge assad. that's easy. but in terms of whether or not we have proceeded in a more deliberate way than some would want us to, and probably a little more than i would want us to if you want to get into that, nonetheless the goal here is to make sure that what happens after assad is, is stable, is diverse, is not chaotic. that the right people are the ones that take over when assad goes. and that's, that's a matter of putting in place, if possible, a kind of an interim political coalition, which will have broad support inside of syria, which will not see a long period of retribution and violence following the fall of assad which will happen. and putting that in place to the extent that's possible is
existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back home in washington, very few people are expecting a breakthrough anytime soon. >> back to the middle east, where egypt's justice minister has warned that the lynching of criminals in the streets by angry citizens signals cassette in the death of the state." the comments came after suspected thieves were beaten and hanged by an angry mob in a rural village in egypt. bamut egypt's opposition blames the government for the failure to restore law and order in the country. it says police are using torture in the very same w
confirmed chemical weapons were used, but they can't say by whom. president obama, of course, has said use of chemical weapons would be a, quote, red line for his administration. we'll see whether that means the u.s. will get more involved in that civil war. >>> senate democrats drop the assault weapons ban from their gun control bill. california senator dianne feinstein had proposed the ban, but there was not enough support for it. >>> and a huge problem for lululemon. i know all the guys around the table are fixated on this one. one batch of its black yoga pants were too sheer. no one wants to pay 100 bucks for pants see-through. at least in that industry. the ceo is in trouble and the stock down nearly 10% since last friday. larry, if i can't make a joke on that one -- >> that's a beauty. >>, and of course, the white house, easter egg roll is definitely on. at least for now. press secretary jay carney putting to rest speculation it could be cancelled because of the sequester imposed budget cuts. but the tickets did go out with a warning. that it could be cancelled if there's a governmen
and alexander president obama reaffirmed this commitment stating i recognize that nuclear modernization requires investment for the long-term. that is my commitment to the congress. that is my -- that my administration will pursue these programs and capabilities for as long as i'm president. can you tell us where we are on the efforts to modernize our triad and our nuclear infrastructure and are we on pace to comply with the president's commitment? >> sir, i can tell you that through the submission of the 2013 president's budget, with some exceptions that i told you about, there were parts of the business that the program didn't close, if you'll recall that, excuse me, from last year. but the 2013 budget continued the modernization efforts across the board. some were later than others but it continued the modernization efforts. the 2013 budget turned into a c.r. i don't know what the remainder of the year is going to bring to us in terms of the 2013 piece of this. the 2014 piece we have worked pretty hard over the last year to structure it so it would also continue all of the things that you men
